. if a crisis can be averted. if democrats and republicans can come to an agreement on the big fight that has been frankly smothering american politics for weeks now. president obama announced earlier today that he wants to see a deal done by tomorrow on the big debt ceiling fight that has consumed every bit of oxygen in d.c. for the last few months. the president saying tonight that congressional leaders are on the clock. they have 24 to 36 hours to get a deal done. as planning a vote that the u.s. government should not default on our debt and shut down comes down to the wire, we are inching close enough to the edge here that two of the world's major credit rating agencies have warned that our national credit rating may be downgraded as a result of this standoff. the day that the u.s. would actually hit the debt ceiling and start going into default and shutting down is august 2. but this does not mean that we have until august 2 before we lose our national credit rating. that could just happen right now. because of the uncertainty and because of how long it is taking to get this done. right
minutes that window was big enough and right in time for the shuttle to take off today. >> chad, same kind of rules apply, weather standards for the landing that's coming in 12 days? >> a little bit even -- i would say a little bit more conditional on the rain factor because it's a bigger circle. right now all we had to do was shoot this thing straight up. when we land this thing it has to be very dry. you can't have showers around it. think of a dry day in florida in the summertime. you have to go up edwards, one time to white sands but you cannot fly the shuttle because it's screaming hot. thousands of degrees, you can't bly that through a rain shower. the criteria more tense, harder to get through to land this thing back here at kennedy, but they have a big time -- they're going to have a big-time party when this thing finally does come back here. >> chad myers, appreciate that breakdown. good to see you, as always. thanks to our john zarrella. eight minutes past the hour. >>> sound effect is the u.s. labor market sputtering to a virtual standstill. as you know by now, the economy added
to ask the big oil companies to give up one dime not one dime of their $4 billion annual subsidy. they have refused to ask big corporations to give up one dime in their corporate loopholes. what we are negotiating with is a group of people who won't compromise. a group of people who have said we want the middle class to pay more taxes so that big corporations can pay less. we want seniors to lose their medicare so that big oil companies can continue to foost on their subdis. that's what the problem is. >> the case that republicans have taken a hard line on talks, at the same time democrats are taking what sounds like a hard line on entitlements. let me read a statement from leader pelosi that says we continue to oppose benefit cuts in social security and medicare. these pillars should not be used a as piggy bank to subsidize tax cuts for the wealthy. are democrats not just as guilty of failing to compromise as republicans are in this case? >> no, absolutely not. what we have said and i think most americans would agree with this is the middle class and seniors should not be asked
the impact. but i'm wondering, two of the candidates will be coming out after this big debate here in washington. does that give an advantage or a disadvantage or is it unclear based on the outcome? >> well, it's unclear based on the outcome certainly. the congresswoman and the congressman have both been very strong in their opposition. >> no compromise. right? >> that will appeal to many people in the base of the party. and i think what you've heard from some of the other candidates is somewhat more equivocal position. though john huntsman this week came out strongly for the boehner plan and said it was the only plan going and that the republicans and everybody ought to get behind it. congresswoman bachmann in particular, i think, has staked out that kind of tea party position. and she'll probably benefit from that. i think the other candidates are trying to get a piece of that, but try to go more broadly. >> i think bachmann and to a certain extent paul also risk some pleasure of backlash, or could in their don't raise the ceiling at all and their positions, playing down is a pot
it could be a big day for our whole entire country. >> and the news is whether we've got a deal or not. shortly after ten o'clock last night. harry reid said you know, i was going to have everybody show up in the mid feel the night and take a vote at 1 a.m. and he received word from the white house that apparently, the white house and this really hacks him off, you know, because it kind of bypasses him, and former speaker pelosi, dealing directly with mitch mcconnell, joe biden 6789 it sounds like they've got a deal, and close to a deal and some of of the frame work as well to talk about it. >> yeah, it looks like it's been going back and forth and take a look, it looks like debt ceiling increase, 1.2 trillion to 2.4 last night last through the night and living in my office, as high as 2.8 trillion dollars in debt ceiling increases, spending cuts have to be about the same amount commensurate. >> dollar for dollar. >> at least if not more. >> and guys, there's a little bit of wrangling whether or not that balanced budget amendment that john boehner needed so badly to get the house to vo
. these are big proximate but we're a big country and we'll solve it. >> reporter: now, the main issue he's going to have to teal with is why he decided to hire andy colson who was later arrested as part of the investigation into the phone hacking. this is something that was brought up yesterday in the hearings and it turns out that his chief of staff actually warned the british police not to brief the prime minister on these phone hacking issues. lawmakers today are clearly going to try to get to the bottom of this as you can imagine from the opposition labor party. >> david cameron said he didn't know about this either. thanks so much. >> it's going to be hard to top the intensity of what happened yesterday. the theater of yesterday's phone hacking hearings. two hours after telling parliament it was the most hufble day of his life, rupert murdoch took a pie in the face. a 26-year-old man armed with a pie full of shaving cream nails rupert murdoch from behind saying you greedy billionaire and it didn't take long for murdoch's wife there, leapt to her husband's defense. she tried to clock the guy

that she could catch fire. look, when you start this thing, when you win iowa, if you win iowa big, that thing starts rolling through new hampshire and south carolina, it's over in weeks. i agree 100%. >> how was she going in philadelphia suburbs? how is she going to do in the i-4 corridor and in wisconsin? how is she going to do in new mexico, arizona? i would suggest, with swing voters not well at all. >> there's no doubt if you nominate michele bachmann, it's an enormous risk. the only conditions, i think, under which i believe she could win the presidency, if people say, if they did in 1980, i don't care, i'm taking a chance with this guy because what we got we can't stand, you get 9% or 10% unemployment, two more years, this country is ready for a lot of change. more "morning joe" in a moment. with the hotels.com 48-hour sale, the possibilities are endless. interesting... save up to 50% this tuesday and wednesday only. hotels.com. be smart. book smart.  finally, there's a choice for my patients with an irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation, or afib, that's not cause
get to be big, big problems. >> so those are some of the warnings signs, or are there warning signs that you are taking in -- that you are just too hot? >> i did get all the way to eventually the first stages of heat stroke one time in my life in nebraska when i was working outside. the first thing you need to do, obviously, drink all the water you can. if you feel crap thats in your legs or stomach, that means you are not getting that water, and you will feel not first but cramps. that's the first step. and then after that, if you feel like you can't just stand up anymore -- when i got to the point, i could not drive my car home. somebody had to drive me home because i could not function. my brain would not function at all. at 104 degrees you're in a heat stroke, and you need medical attention because you are vomiting. if you start to vomit, you need to get out of the heat and get your body temperature taken down. if you are not sweating anymore, you need to go to the hospital. >> what about the fact that it got so hot so fast? has that made a difference in a case like this? >> no
with big business. they break stories on big business is being corrupt. then you have the right of center papers that are obsessed with big corporations -- i mean, with big government. there. it is cool parity i am not for the outing -- the suppression of the adding of corrupt republicans. there is a huge difference. i am totally for all of these republican screwballs to get into trouble getting fired or quit saying today that they get caught, not stretching out for three ludicrous unbelievably weeks. thank you very much, congressman weiner. thank you. i loved every second of it, congressman weiner. especially the hack part. i am the hacker. so we are fighting back. we are entering a phase where objective and neutral journalism is now laughable thing of the fast. it does not exist. i met the people that trotter pretzel themselves into being totally neutral. no one is neutral in the entire world. you have used the cudgel of false neutrality as a means to push the american narrative to the left for the last 40 years. to hell with it. i am sorry that i am being honest and i believe in freedo
